Cold Weather Lunchbox Ideas

We are more than halfway through the school year and you may find yourself stumped on what to send your little one for lunch. With cold weather in full swing, pack your child a hearty, warm lunch that he or she will be excited to unpack. Check out this week of winter-themed lunchbox ideas that will not only keep your child full and energized throughout the day, but also provide a warm winter touch:

Monday - Soup: Soup is a great treat when the weather is chilly. Send a thermos filled with your child’s favorite soup in his or her lunchbox, and don’t forget the crackers! Our favorites are chicken noodle, vegetable, minestrone, or pumpkin and tomato.

Tuesday – Mini quiches: Mini quiches provide a healthy finger food to pack in your little one’s lunch.  Get ahead by making them early in the week and sending them along later for a tasty snack. We suggest a broccoli and bacon combo, or spinach and mushroom.

Wednesday – Falafels: Falafels are a healthy snack that are great for lunchboxes. Not only are they made from vegetables, but they are fun and bite-sized! Serve them up with some additional veggies and hummus.

Thursday – Baked pasta: Pasta bakes are a nice, hearty lunch option. Pack some in a thermos to keep your little one warm and happy during the cold winter weather. Our favorite is chicken parmesan baked ziti.

Friday - Quesadilla: Kids love quesadillas, and parents love when they can sneak some vegetables into their child’s meal. Add in some beans with cheese and a few peppers for a wintery snack that will keep your little one toasty and full.
